Nice shot. I love the clouds! Very pretty.

Thanks for your comment, Ryan!

I'll quibble with Ryan--too strong and dramatic to be "pretty." Very good shot.

Ryan Calhoun on August 10, 2007

It can't be both? With the yellow and blue paint, with the almost gingerbread architecture of the towers, with the twin clocks with oversized numerals and hands... I actually can't think of a better word. Marilyn, you're absolutely right, it's very strong and dramatic, especially due to Anne's wonderful perspective and timing--if it were any less of these things, it would be only "cute". Ahh, but because of it's strength and dramaticism, it majestically graduates to "pretty"!

:-)

Okay, Ryan, I'm willing to add pretty. I guess I consider it a sort of trivializing word, but I realize that not everybody does. (I remember that as adolescent girls, some of us debated whether we'd like to be considered "pretty" or "beautiful." I opted for "beautiful"--not that I considered it an option in reality!)

(And I consider "cute" the ultimate trivialization, though I consider my dog in a side car "cute." It is a trivial picture.)

Hello Marilyn and Ryan! Thanks both of you for your comments. To me it doesn't matter how you call it, as long as you consider it good, so no need to argue. (Anyway, my English knowledge is probably not good enough to notice these small differences) Cheers, Anne:)

Marilyn Whiteley on August 10, 2007

Yes, Anne, "good" we can agree on--and something stronger than good!

Please excuse me, both of you. My mother taught high school English, and in recent years, since I've been writing a bit of history, I've had copy-editors going over my writing in minute detail. These experiences have left me scarred and hypersensitive.

Cheers, Marilyn

Hallo Marilyn, thanks again for your comment. Being a writer (author) you are of course very accurate and sensitive regarding the use of words. Anyway, I'm glad you like this picture. Have a nice weekend! Cheers, Anne
